I work as a cook and I just wanted to let you know that you are taking some chances getting sick doing that. Unless you cook the chicken first then refreeze it. It is one of the first rules of food service not to refreeze chicken. It carries e-coli and Salmonella. So, please for the sake of your self not getting sick don't do that. lol. You can get really really sick and in some cases actually die!

they are usually frozen in the stores. then thawed on the shelf. then we bring them home and freeze them too. no biggy IMO


ETA: stop quoting me to argue. I have worked in many grocery stores. many of the "cooking rules" (such as do not refreeze meat) are only partial rules...or are preferences that have been passed down for generations as actual rules. not refreezing chicken meat is more about the deterioration of the cells in the meat and the texture slightly changing than dealing with bacteria...especially if the meat never reaches room temp. now...reaching room temp is another story. that is a no-no.
